NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday -- his 67th birthday -- released a series of photos of a trip to southern Siberia, in which he's doing all sorts of rugged, outdoorsy activities.

This time, though, he's keeping his shirt on. (The Kremlin famously released photos in 2017 of a shirtless Putin fishing.) Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu joined Putin on the trip.

In the current batch of photos, Putin is seeing wearing sleek sunglasses, walking up mountains with a walking stick and striking a pose sitting on massive rocks.
